03 Aug 2020 - 14 Aug 2020 • Utrecht, Netherlands
Abstract:
Under the auspices of FoLLI the European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information (ESSLLI) is organized every year in a different European country. It takes place over two weeks in the European Summer, hosts approximately 50 different courses at both the introductory and advanced levels, attracting around 400 participants each year from all the world. The main focus of the program of the summer schools is the interface between linguistics, logic and computation, with special emphasis in human linguistic and cognitive ability.

ESSLLI 2020 — 32nd European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
03 Aug 2020 - 14 Aug 2020 • Utrecht, Netherlands
Organizer:
Funded by the European Research Council
Abstract:
The field of natural language semantics has undergone what some refer to as an ‘experimental turn’ and is arguably currently undergoing a ‘computational turn’. By expanding the toolbox available to the semanticist, these two turns have the effect of expanding the phenomena that can be explained and the varieties of semantic explanation that can be offered. For example, experimental methods can help distinguish between alternative explanations of semantic effects, e.g. whether to classify controversial phenomena as implicatures or presuppositions. Similarly, computational models of semantics can generate fine-grained and non-categorical predictions that can fruitfully be tested experimentally. And both kinds of methods can be used to ask questions about the emergence of semantic structures in language, including which factors influence their distribution and typology. Given this wider toolbox and purview, we aim to gather a workshop to showcase exciting new work that develops new semantic explanations using experimental and computational methods, as well as to invite broader reflection on the methodology of semantics now and in its future. Topics of potential interest include but are not limited to: * Experimental semantics and pragmatics * Graded/non-categorical semantic theories and explanations * Information-theoretic measures and explanations in semantics and pragmatics * Semantic universals * Learnability and evolution of semantics and pragmatics * Bayesian approaches to semantics and pragmatics * Probing neural models for learned semantic representations * Semantics in emergent communication protocols * The methodology of semantics We invite anonymized submission of abstracts of 2 pages (12 pt font; 1in or 2.5cm margins) — with an extra page for references of figures — on new research on topics related to those listed above by February 15.

ETLTC2020-VIRTUAL — ETLTC2020-VIRTUAL: 2nd ACM Chapter International Conference on Educational Technology, Language and Technical Communication
21 Aug 2020 - 22 Aug 2020 • Aizuwakamatsu, Japan
Organizer:
ETLTC & ACM Chapter on Elearning and Technical Communication
Abstract:
ETLTC2020-Virtual is an initiative of the ACM Chapter on Elearning and Technical Communication and the Technical Communication Lab based out of the Center for Language Research, Dept of Computer Science at the University of Aizu, Japan. The ETLTC 2020-Virtual theme – Educational Technology and Technology Assisted Language Learning addresses the collaboration between the use of technology in global education and language studies. The idea of this conference is to foster a global communication platform that aims to discuss technology-assisted language learning and teaching and customer satisfaction worldwide in all other uses of educational technology. This is an opportunity to create synergy between educators and industry professionals across a wide spectrum of applications. The conference’s two cross-cutting themes are designed to help unpack the interrelations of quality education, use of technology for academic and industrial learning, and the technical communication that will help people understand the details of the use of such technology through the lenses of linguists and technical communicators, consumers of technology, customers who handle e-commerce technologies and interfaces that lead to learning; teachers including corporate trainers; education specialists, school and corporate leadership, and school and corporate governance. ETLTC's community of educational researchers, policymakers, and practitioners increasingly recognize that educational and industrial challenges in the use of technology, language and communication are getting increasingly complex, dynamic and multidimensional. ETLTC will, therefore, create a platform for exchange, learning, and collaboration between professionals who are working directly in the industry or in close association with it, and traditional faculty and students who work with different educational technologies in daily life. This platform will also allow us to understand how to bridge the gap between what we teach in our classes, and how useful it is in real life industry (transfer skills).

IEEE SLT 2020 — IEEE Spoken Language Technology Workshop
13 Dec 2020 - 16 Dec 2020 • Shenzhen, China
Abstract:
Recently, deep learning methods have been increasingly applied on spoken language technologies, including signal processing, language understanding and generation, dialogue management, as well as joint optimisations of these (end-to-end learning). However, such methods still have limitations and it is not yet clear that deep learning and joint optimisation is the key to the future. Encompassing the current deep learning trends and traditional knowledge-based methods, SLT's 2020 main theme will be around "Spoken language technologies: deep learning and beyond".
